I made pumpkin bread this week for my contribution to Breadline. I just double this recipe and have 4 loaves at a pop. I bake on Wednesday and Thursday mornings before work, so I dropped off 8 loaves this week.
Well, I love pumpkin bread too, and I decided I needed some this week. I made this pumpkin mug cake for breakfast while I was baking for Breadline. It was a warm and delicious breakfast. It is delicious plain but I like it at breakfast with a dollop of whipped cream. When I make it in the evening for dessert, I like to add a pecan topping or a cream cheese frosting. You'll have to try all four ways and decide how you like it best.
Keto Pumpkin Mug Cake
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 Tbsp. coconut flour
2 tsp. almond flour
2 Tbsp. brown erythritol blend, I like Sukrin gold
1 Tbsp. water, or almond milk
2 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
In microwave safe bowl (I use a 2 cup pyrex bowl), melt butter. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Scrape side of bowl (or divide mixture between two microwave safe mugs) and cook in microwave for 60 seconds to 3 minutes (1 minute if divided between two mugs, up to 3 minutes if in one bowl). Cook for shortest time, check and continue cooking in 30 second intervals. To test, a toothpick should come out of the center clean or with a few crumbs.
Brown Sugar Pecan Topping
2 Tbsp. butter
2 oz. pecans, chopped
1 Tbsp. brown erythritol sweetener
small pinch of salt
dash of vanilla extract
Melt butter in small microwave safe bowl, add pecans, sweetener, salt and vanilla. Mix well, pour over mug cake.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened - I use full fat Philadelphia
1 tbsp. heavy cream, or water
1 tsp. powdered erythritol, or sweetener of choice
1 pinch pumpkin pie spice
Add all the ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread over mug cake
Sweetened Whipped Cream
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 Tbsp. powdered erythritol, or sweetener of choice
Pour cream and sweetener into small bowl or cup, whip (I like to use my coffee frother in a mug). Spread over mug cake.
